She goes on to say that she felt she would be fired, and she felt that based on the final task alone, she deserved to go. She had hoped that Trump would look back on her overall performance, but unfortunately, that was not to be. While she is shocked that Frank is not sitting next to her (meaning fired), she says, “more power to him!”
She holds no ill will toward Frank, a guy she calls passionate, nuts (in a good way, I think, because she laughs as she says it) and someone who can fight his way out of anything. She says she learned a lot about herself throughout this process: that she can stay up for 50 hours straight, that she can get a lot more in life accomplished than she thought, and that she can do whatever she puts her mind to. She plans to apply everything she’s learned to her personal and professional life as she returns to her job, her friends, and living her life.
Kristine’s exit interview tells us that she’s from Studio City, California, and felt she could be the Apprentice because she’s worked in so many different fields and she kinds of “gets it”. She feels you have to be able to go with the flow, be a hard worker, and be willing to do whatever it takes to succeed.
She too recaps the final task for us. She claims she executed the entire task by herself, because Nicole didn’t do much. She says she put together the promotional video and all the static marketing materials, so she took care of about 90% of the work. Nicole’s only job, she says, was to put together the Power Point presentation, since Nicole claimed to be an expert in this area.
This presentation was intended to explain to Trump the entire marketing campaign, but Nicole was unable to begin the presentation without technical help from James, which didn’t make a good impression. Kristine doesn’t hold back as she says in reference to Nicole, “Are you flippin’ kidding me??? You’ve got one responsibility on this damn task and you can’t make it work?”
Throughout her interview, we see footage of the presentation. The topic then turns to the brochure, where we see the footage where Trump points out that the phone number on her brochure is different from the other brochure. When she realized their error, Kristine says she wanted to crawl in a hole and was afraid she would “projectile vomit on Mr. Trump.” Well, it might have improved his hairstyle, if nothing else. (As a side note, I’d like to point out that this is the second time this season that Kristine has used the word “vomit”. In the episode where Nicole came over to Kinetic, Kristine said that Nicole was willing to “vomit information” about her former teammates. Note to self: get Kristine a thesaurus.)
Kristine says to this day, she doesn’t know who pulled that phone number. She says she’s not trying to sidestep the issue, but she honestly doesn’t know where that phone number came from and states she does not recall writing that down. In reflecting on the Boardroom, she says that going into the Boardroom, she told Nicole that they win or they lose together. However, after hearing Trump say he was thinking of firing only one person from each of the two losing teams, she thought, “What the hell is this man talking about?”
All the attention was on Heidi and Frank, so she was shocked when Trump fired her without warning. She didn’t get to defend herself, and began to argue with him, which resulted in his yelling at her. She felt that the focus had been on Frank and Heidi and what a piece of crap they put together and not on her performance.
She admits that the fact that Nicole is going into the final task has caused her to be so bitter and “pissed off” and she feels it’s just not right. Nevertheless, since Trump will have to work with whoever he hires, Kristine says he must see something in Nicole that he didn’t see in her.
She concludes by saying that the best part of her experience is learning that you can do anything you put your mind to. She never in her life thought she would be able to do some of the things she did throughout the show, and she feels like she’s been a slacker for the first 30-something years of her life. In short, she’s learned a lot about herself and thinks down the road, Mr. Trump will realize he shot himself in the foot by letting her go so early.
And so we have it: Nicole, Stefani, Frank, and James: the final four, all from Arrow, the Cinderella team. Who will win? E-mail your predictions and rationales to me and I will include them in next week’s article. Until next week, I’ll see you over at Foxes on Idol!
